“The end of the twin towers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2014 NEW

I visited the twin towers as. Tourist in the same year they were destroyed. The museum was well presented but as a 'brit'. It was a little too 'near the bone'. in some sections which people may find upsetting.

“Worth the Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2014 NEW

This was on my must see list for New York. Although it is a somber place I felt the museum is very tastefully done with lots of interesting stories being told. Although there are warnings near some displays to exercise caution if showing children, mine aged 9 and 11 found it sad but interesting. Give yourself a couple of hours there.

“Interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2014

Everybody remembers where they were when Ground Zero came to be. This was very interesting to see the the photographs on display from the Ground Zero point of view. Haunting. A small museum that doesn't take up the day to go through.

“Ground Zero Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2014 via mobile

It is a moving experience to visit the Ground Zero Museum as it is a powerful reminder that those who died live on in our memories. The photographs of all who died can be seen as can many exhibits that reflect the horror of that fateful day known as 9/11. A visit to see the Memorial and Museum is a compelling must for any serious visitor to New York.

“Intimate Museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2014

The museum tour consists of a 15 minute video produced by the photographer whom the exhibition revolves around. It provides detail that is not really expressed elsewhere and enables a close connection to the people affected on 9/11.

I think it is worth doing but don't expect anything very grand. The museum is housed in one room on the first floor of a building where the entrance is easy to miss; look out for the small pavement banner sign and anonymous looking entry door.

Proceeds go to families affected by the disaster.
